Katie Couric: Maybe We Need a Muslim Version of the Cosby Show

If you happen to be among those who oppose a mosque near Ground Zero, you might not be so biased if only some enterprising television producer would create a sitcom about an upper middle class Muslim family — perhaps featuring a lawyer wife and a doctor husband in a colorful cable-knit sweater — and their humorous attempts to raise children in spite of the annoyances of everyday life, such as occasional cameo appearances by Sinbad.

In Katie Couric’s CBSNews.com’s 2010 in Review, the so-called perky one suggested something like that in her regular segment entitled, “There are two sides to every story: The side I agree with, and the racist/Islamophobic/bigoted side”:

Don’t stop there. What should this Muslim sitcom be called? “Shi’ite My Dad Says”? “South Park51”? “Hangin’ Mr. Cooper”? “Muhammad in the Middle”? “Everybody Hates Carl“? The premise has been beaten like the CBS Evening News in the ratings, but feel free to help out anyway, Katie!

I’d think Couric would be more interested in a sitcom that might help dispel the perception that network news anchors are biased, elitist, wildly overpaid, semi-dimwitted impartiality imposters. She’s really earning that looming pay cut.

Not surprisingly, Couric didn’t feel it necessary to mention the surge in hate crimes against Jews. Sounds like another sitcom is in order.
